I make nearly all of my journeys in London by bike because it’s cheap and healthy, and as councillor for Clissold ward in Hackney I’m pleased to represent the area with the highest rates of cycling in all of London.

We owe it to the many who already cycle to do what we can to make getting to work or to the shops by bike less difficult; less dangerous. But we’ve also got to support the hundreds of thousands who want to make more trips by bike but who are currently put off by conditions on the roads. 

If they were able to then the benefits for them and for us all would be huge: increased rates of cycling would help with air quality, childhood obesity, climate change and congestion. It doesn’t cost much to support cycling, and the return is enormous- a cleaner, greener, more liveable city.

It is, vital that the party works alongside wider society to put pressure on the Government to change it's course and stop the damaging cuts.

Just before the election Tories promised that there would be no cuts to tax credits in this Parliament.

Yet less than 6 months later a bill was passed through Parliament which will result in working families being more than £1,300 worse off.

The Tories are breaking their promises to stand up for working people. In Hackney alone, around 22,500 families with children will be hit by the changes. There are currently plans for transitional changes to protect affected families.

Labour recently backed a vote that delayed the plan- for the time being. Delaying the plan isn’t enough. We want David Cameron to stop the tax credit cut. You can sign our petition here.
